Memory is always a critical resource for a System-on-Chip (SoC) design. It seems like designers are always wanting more memory, and the memory they have is never fast enough to keep up with the processors, especially when using multi-core processors and GPUs. To complicate matters, today’s SoC architectures tend to share memory… Read More

I’m developing a taste for user-group meetings. In my (fairly) recently assumed role as a member of the media, I’m only allowed into the keynotes, but from what I have seen, vendors work hard to make these fresh and compelling each year through big-bang product updates and industry/academic leaders talking about their work in bleeding-edge… Read More

Back in the day the Dracula tool from Cadence was king of the DRC and LVS world for physical IC verification, however more recently we’ve seen Calibre from Mentor Graphics as the leader in this realm. Cadence wanted to reclaim their earlier prominence in physical verification so they had to come out with something different… Read More
